Contemporary interiors,  luxurious facilities, open-plan living and a captivating forest outlook - Toshokan townhouse offers spacious alpine style. A very popular choice for larger families, perhaps due to the separate 'media' room...which is better utilised as an escape room for the kids. There are actually two four-bedroom houses and in the second this media room also has bunk beds in. Instead the first house has a Japanese timber bath ensuite to one of the bedrooms and literally hundreds of books on the shelves.

Take your pick - providing either is available, sometimes a problem due to their popularity with returning families.

In an excellent Middle Hirafu village position, only a 5 minute walk to Ace Family chairlift or a short walk to the resort shuttle bus stop. The location is close to the main street, convenience stores, restaurants, nightlife, onsens, and the less explored lower village restaurants.
